Re: “So I’m Marrying a Reenactor

My boyfriend and I are both reenactors, I'm going on 15 years, he's going on 3, we actually have yet to do an event in the same camp as I do a lower class working civilian impression and he is in a Confederate infantry unit. It can be quite the new world to get into as long as you have the right attitude! It definitely makes history more interesting. Even if you're not into the big skirts and bonnets there are nearly endless options (sometimes I'm a laundress or seamstress, sometimes a Postmaster- yes, women could be appointed to that position- sometimes I'm in a plain working outfit, others in a more middle class basic ensemble... and I make my own stuff, you find something from the era that you are good at or interested in, do your homework, and run with it)

Often we have stories to share and laugh about and that's really the best part. The memories and fun times, as well as the learning from each other, as he's more in the military side of things (even though I portrayed a female soldier for 8 years, disguised as a guy, since women weren't allowed to openly enlist yet) And I'm the one with the sewing expertise he needs to learn for his own stuff.

Best of luck to you, and hope you guys have as much fun with it as we do :)
